iLab Neuromorphic Vision C++ Toolkit Downloads

The iLab Neuromorphic Vision C++ Toolkit is distributed freely under GPL in an effort to broaden the development of a comprehensive set of C++ classes to ease the implementation of computational neuroscience models for real-time applications.

The source tree is now maintained using the Subversion revision control system. The main development platform is Linux but the core functionality (excluding interfacing with cameras, robots, etc) also works under Windows (using cygwin) and MacOS X.

See the documentation page for many publicly-available resources which will assist you in getting started.

Publicly available downloads:

Password-protected resources (see bottom of page to gain access):

Online documentation note: The HTML Online Documentation is your most useful source of information. Be sure, in particular, that you check the Related Pages in there. Note: in some browsers, the Javascript-based hierarchical list of documents in the sidebar at left will either take a long time to come up, or will cause Internet Explorer to ask you whether you want to abort a script that is taking to long (be sure to say that you don't want to abort). It takes only a few seconds to come up in Netscape 4.78 but can take close to a couple of minutes in other browsers.

Note: For academic and research use only! Most of this code is protected under a pending U.S. patent.

How to Gain Access to the Password-Protected Downloads

To access the iLab C++ Neuromorphic Vision Toolkit and other iLab source code packages, please use the following procedure:

  • Create an account on the iLab Forum. It is very easy and will take only a few seconds.

  • Post a message to the Source Code Access Requests board under the C++ Neuromorphic Vision Toolkit category. In your post, describe why you are interested in the source code and what your plans are for future development, and include full contact information.

  • We will email you a username and password to use to access the password-protected pages. Thus, make sure that you have provided a valid email address when registering on the iLab Forum. You should receive that email quickly after you register. The email will be sent to the email address you provided when registering, will come from the iLab forum admin, and will welcome you to the forum, as well as explain you how to download the code.

  • Please note: If you do not receive an email with download instructions within minutes, then something is not working. Please then email indicating your iLab forum username and we will manually email you a password to use to download the source. Finally note that the password you will use to download the source is not the same as the one you use to login into the iLab forum.

  • If you don't get a password within minutes of registering, send an email message directly to Laurent Itti ( explaining your situation.

  • If you wish to become a developer, and gain full SVN access to the master source tree as well as obtain an account on our Beowulf Cluster, please indicate so in your post and also please email with a short but convincing statement of why we should give you developer access.

Participate! Do not hesitate to post messages with questions, bug reports and suggestions to the iLab Forum.
